HYANNIS – [DEVELOPING] – [HN NOTES] – Members of a Bearses Way family neighborhood were rudely rattled from their homes by what must have sounded like a single vehicle domestic missile attack. One neighbor mentioned the truck’s owner often relaxes inside the now completely pulverized parked pickup when his workday is through…
… and it’s a good thing that wasn’t the case last night when the full-metal Hellfire SUV jumped the curb, screaming recklessly toward ground zero, his driver-side door!
Shortly after 10:00 p.m. last evening, police and firefighters responded to Bearses Way at the intersection with Hampshire Ave for reports that a SUV had just crashed through a fence and into a parked vehicle.
Upon arrival, police officers spoke with a dazed passenger, learning the driver had just fled the scene. The dazed passenger wasn’t sure of the driver’s name. According to sources, another witness also reported an apparent driver taking off from the wreckage.
As you will see in the following HN Video, the twisted wreckage was astounding, way too much for a family neighborhood where the speed limit is only 35 miles per hour tops; a speed limit that is supposed to drop by over half as one approaches the roundabout in front of the Hyannis Youth and Community Center. It’s a neighborhood where children of all ages are out coming and going at all hours, oblivious to lunatic, speed-hungry, curb-jumping drivers (most of whom are texting) riding their Hellfire SUVs, supersonic sports cars, and souped-up shitboxes toward local drinking holes, drug hangouts, and other frivolous destinations. And it’s these irresponsible morons who give our local drinking and drugging community a bad name! And it never ever ends well when one of these selfish jackasses hop behind the wheel. Their selfishness quite often ending in death or serious injury. Way too often involving innocent pedestrians or responsible sober drivers, the targeted majority… the “accidental” victims of their recklessness.
Last night’s reckless driver has yet to be found. The car is registered to a local bartender, I’m told. But it turns out she was nowhere near the scene. She was reportedly busy at work, serving up cocktails to other potential boozed-up heroes contemplating their own “last chance power drive.”
The Barnstable Police Department is investigating the cause of the missile attack. [DEVELOPING]
